The wingspan is 7–9 mm.

The larvae feed on Corylus avellana, Corylus colurna, Corylus maxima and Ostrya carpinifolia. They mine the leaves of their host plant. They create an upper-surface silvery tentiform mine. At first, the mine remains quite flat, and has the appearance of a blotch mine. At the end, the leaf is strongly contracted. There may be several mines in a single leaf. The pupa is made in a cocoon in a corner of the mine. The frass is deposited in the opposite corner.
